The structure of this piece is articulated by juxtaposing three different families of sounds (in order to create sections). These clear and abrupt cuts between materials were done intuitively; some of them happen between similar sounds: to give the false impression of movement; the rest of the cuts occur between very contrasting sounds: unexpected changes that try to affect the listener's perception of reality.
frÃo (the Spanish word for 'cold') was composed using stochastic processes and is a musical expression of the polysemic meaning of this word: low-temperature bodies, indifference, the chilling effects of cold colors, among other meanings. Phil Thomson, from the now defunct Centibel netlabel, defined this work as "a synthetic meditation on timbre and stasis".
ssst was created by the opposition of two principles applied to the sense of energy and activity, these principles are: retaining and releasing. When retaining, the character of the piece is quiet and with individual gestures; when releasing, the energy is freed and mass movements arise. Thomson said about this piece: "a digital clamour, conjuring images of a virtual ensemble performing in an slowly exploding concert hall haunted by microsonic ghosts".
